PAN Data
November 26, 2002 - European Commission: Dinitramine is one of 320 pesticides to be withdrawn in July 2003. Some 320 substances used in plant protection products (PPPs) - including insecticides, fungicides and herbicides - are to be withdrawn from the market by 25 July 2003 as part of the European CommissionŐs new approach to the evaluation of active substances in plant protection products. This aims to improve safeguards to ensure that all such products in use are safe for the environment and human health. Users, wholesalers and retailers of plant protection products will need to be aware of whether the products they use or sell are likely to be withdrawn, so as to prevent them being left with stocks of unusable material. Those concerned should contact their national authority to check the authorisation status for any particular product. The Regulation (nˇ 2076/2002 of 20 November 2002), with the list of the 320 substances, has now been published in the Offical Journal. Ref: MIDDAY EXPRESS.

This rule revokes tolerances and food and feed additive regulations established for residues of 16 pesticide chemicals in or on certain raw agricultural commodities (RACs), processed foods, and animal feeds.

The applicable registrations for these pesticides have been canceled because of nonpayment of maintenance fees or by registrant request.
